What Can You Control In Competition? Your Mindset.
Whether or not you’re a great competitor is entirely dependent on your physical and mental preparedness, the way you choose to react to victories, mistakes, and ever-changing circumstances, and how you process and learn from it when it’s all over. While there are parts of competition that are undeniably out of your control, the competition toolbox focuses on what you can control in competition; your mindset.
In this toolbox, you’ll gain a scientific understanding of the psychology of competition, and be introduced to easy-to-implement worksheets, audio files, and exercises you can use to help you and your team get your mind right before, during, and after competition.
With our guidance, we will help you turn you and all of your athletes into master competitors.
